A PayLink or Link for Payment allows you to send a guest a digital link to pay a deposit for upcoming bedroom booking reservations within Rezlynx. This functionality is available for bedroom bookings only.
There is a video at the bottom of this article to compliment the written process below.
There are 2 types of link available;
Manual PayLinks can be created on the Guarantee page of a reservation and the user can determine the specific Value & Due Date. Providing the PayLink tag (%PAYLINKS%) is added to the confirmation template, the guest wil receive a manual PayLink URL
Dynamic PayLinks reduces effort on the part of the hotel staff meaning that users no longer need to create a PayLink for every booking. With a simple one-off task of adding the Dynamic PayLink tag (%AUTOPAYLINK%) to your confirmation templates, the confirmations received by guests will include a Dynamic PayLink URL. When the guest selects this link it will load the landing page which will reflect the remaining balance of the booking in real-time.
In either case, if the guest then performs a successful transaction users in Rezlynx will then see the following against the booking;
- ‘Paid’ PayLink entry associated with the booking
- Deposit will be added
- Payment Token will be captured and linked to the booking
- Booking status will be updated.
If you’ve already signed-up to GuestPay you will already have PayLinks functionality available and you should see the ‘PayLink Overview’ option within the main Rezlynx navigation system (Guest Journey > Billing > PayLink Overview).
